[sdiy] Special tools for SMT

Here's how my feeders work:
those are regular feeders from vintage P&P machine (guess it was 
Philips?) bought 2nd hand, or maybe 3rd or even 4th. Mounted on DIY 
table. Car door lock actuator is used to push the feed button on the 
feeder, and it's mounted on rails, so it can be moved to any feeder, and 
is activated with foot pedal.

To pick up the part I use $20 P&P vacum pump from Aliexpress.

I don't use it anymore, and when need for manual placement, I just lay 
the stripe flat, take the cover tape only one component at a time and 
use the same P&P pump as in this video. No problem putting hundreds of 
parts this way.

If you want, I can sell you those feeders, got about 30 or more.
Or entire machine if you want to pick it up in person. Then we'll have a 
couple of beers too.
